I'll start off by saying this is the best relationship i've ever been in and I love this girl with all my being. I'm 100% sure she loved me with all her being too. About 2-3 weeks before our split we had some communication and compromising issues (about her next college choice) and after being together for 3 years ultimately she had been dishonest with me in order to avoid conflict about the issue.
I'll be upfront to be unbiased. I was definitely not happy with her decision to go to a school further away forcing us into an extra 1-2 years of Long distance (we had already been long distance for almost the past year).
Granted, I apologized after I cooled off as I know I wouldn't be happy someone else telling me where I should've attended school at. I got upset because for the past 6 months she had been telling me she wanted to go to some schools closer to me.
I honestly don't care where she goes at the end of the day, but even days before this occurred she was ecstatic about getting into a school nearby. I'm talking tears of joy crying happy.
She broke up with me 3 days AFTER she told me to buy a plane ticket to come see her at the end of July for a week long vacation. (no refund) Everything seemed really sudden.
She isn't a bad/mean person. I honestly think she made this decision in 2 days time. I believe there was outside influence to the decision such as her cousin telling her to just end it.
It took her 3-4 days before she even started removing me from social media, unfriending me, and more. It took her 2-3 weeks to finish unfriending me one by one from all our stuff.. FB, insta, snapchat, our dating text app, blocked my #, etc. I didn't even know she blocked me at all until 3 weeks later when I texted her on my bday.
I had been giving her space hoping she'd reach out to change her mind. She ignored any contact I made and blocked me further. I've since left her be to focus on me and let her sort her thoughts.
I'll add more in the next comment...
She had her FB deactivated for almost 5 weeks, deleted her account, and then before it was fully gone she re-activated it // defriended me at that point almost 5-6 weeks after our breakup.
After I made everything public which showed old pictures of us.. no joke within 2-4 hours she removed all mutual friends of ours.
She is pretty tech savvy and so am I.
She isn't dating anyone else. I'm OKAY with giving her space. I have been.
2 Weeks after the split I sent a long handwritten letter. No begging or pleading. Just letting her know i'm open to talk.
